Randy Couture once dominated the land of the light heavyweights, securing the UFC title twice. “The Natural” was also a three-time holder of the heavyweight belt and is considered one of the all-time greats.

Currently, Jon Jones rules at 205 pounds, but how would “Bones” have stacked up to the likes of Couture, Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz back in the day?

“I think he has all the tools that he needs to be at the top of the division back then or now,” said Couture, during a recent appearance on Submission Radio. “I think there would have been some toss up fights just like him and Daniel Cormier, I mean who’s going to win that fight? Both guys are very tough, I think obviously Daniel has Jon’s undivided attention right now. That’s why he’s been kinda acting the fool and doing some of the things that he’s been doing, but it’s really hard to say until guys actually get in the cage and fight. You can debate it all day long.”

Couture, who retired after a loss to Lyoto Machida, remains one of two men to hold titles in multiple weight classes in the UFC. He has since turned his attention to acting, appearing in “The Expendables” series and now on “Gym Rescue.”

He still takes up the time to hit the gym, though, just using different exercises to stay in shape.

“I spend a lot of time in the gym, I just don’t do a lot of sparring. I really don’t do a lot of striking at all. If I did do striking it’s with our kickboxing coaches to hit mitts and keep the tools sharp, but I do a little more grappling,” he said. “It’s a little less invasive on the neck and the face and those things. You know, I’ve kind of taken a beating over the years”

Couture was asked if he would think about coming out of retirement to face former heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko at an event such as Metamoris. Recently, Couture was rumored as a replacement for Chael Sonnen in the exhibition grappling event.

“That would be interesting and certainly given the time to prepare and get back up into good, solid grappling and wrestling shape, that would be a lot of fun and I think, you know,” he said. “I’m not sure how active Fedor is at this stage, you know him being retired as well, but I’m certainly no opposed to an idea like that.”
